Biking 2006


The first weekend trip of 2006, for a Sunday ride with Gay-Biker-Franken. The lunch stop at the "Käthi-Bräu" beer garden, north of Nuremberg.


A day trip on May 14 with colleagues from work. After a fine ride through the Black Forest, the last stop of the day was at the Rhine crossing between Lahr (Germany) and Erstein (France).
In June I went to Spain and Portugal again. This is a typical scene in Spain: an empty road and empty countryside
The Atlantic coast of the Algarve (Portugal), near Carrapateira
